Eurofighter Typhoon Appoints Mezzanatto as New CEO
Mezzanatto was selected by the shareholders of the Eurofighter GmbH consortium and will start the role on 1 May. He succeeds Carlo Mancusi, who passed away in December 2022.
Wolfgang Gammel, Eurofighter's Chief Operating Officer Programmes (COOP), has served as CEO since the beginning of 2023 and will hand over duties to Giancarlo when he begins in May.
Eurofighter GmbH is a multinational company that coordinates the design, production and upgrade of the Eurofighter Typhoon, and this includes incorporating the jet engines designed and manufactured by EuroJet Turbo GmbH.
Like Mancusi, Mezzanatto comes from Leonardo and complies with the three-year rotation policy of the Eurofighter partner companies. He was most recently Senior Vice President responsible for European military programs since 2021. Before that, he was Chief Operating Officer Programs at Eurofighter GmbH for two years.
